Thursday
New and Edible Asian Things in Kendall
HOT POT AMERICAN SUMMER

New and Edible Asian Things in Kendall

A new hot pot spot (silly rhymes) just opened in Kendall. We’ll start listing things that they have until we come across something you hate. Ready: Taiwanese soup dumplings. Pork belly ramen. Sake sangria. Fried oysters. Fried ice cream. We quit.

This Stuff Would Make a Bald Eagle Cry
AMERICAN BEAUTY

This Stuff Would Make a Bald Eagle Cry

There was only one way American-made ruggedness emporium Ball and Buck could get more American. And that was by plastering their pocket tees, shirts, belts, bow ties and neckties in stars and stripes. Well, they went ahead and did that with their new America Collection. Fourth accordingly.

Freddie Mercury + Burlesque = Yep
GOD SAVE QUEEN

Freddie Mercury + Burlesque = Yep

Remember your great idea? The one where a bunch of burlesque girls do their thing to the sweet sounds of Freddie Mercury via a Queen cover band? We couldn’t believe no one thought of that. Until Oberon put this Queen-inspired burlesque show together. Oh well. Might as well see it anyway.

Friday
How You Throw a Shandy Party
FINE AND SHANDY

How You Throw a Shandy Party

You asked for a truck full of grilled cheese. Roxy’s brought it. Then you asked for an Allston brick-and-mortar full of grilled cheese. Roxy’s brought it again. Then you asked for a party with six homemade shandies, a DJ, $2 Narragansetts and $3 grilled cheeses. You see where this is going.

Monday
Great News for People with Bodies
TAKE IT TO THE BLANK

Great News for People with Bodies

Heads up for that torso and those arms of yours: Blank Label is opening their second showroom in a smashing Downtown Crossing spot full of folks ready to measure you for custom-fit shirts and suits. Oh, and there’s an old bank vault inside. Just seemed like you should know that.
